Gorbachev Alive

Things I was recently surprised to learn:

1. Mikhail Gorbachev is still alive.

2. Pravda reports that yesterday he failed to save Pizza Hut from bankruptcy.

There seems to be a lot I don’t understand about Mikhail Gorbachev.

Pravda considers Gorbachev culpable because he appeared in a Pizza Hut commercial in the 1990s, and it was not sufficiently persuasive to keep Pizza Hut afloat forever. Shame on you, Mikhail Gorbachev, and your insufficient enthusiasm for pizza, such that 20 years later this has happened, although the company is probably still fine it’s just in bankruptcy, just as you yourself are still alive, apparently.
